Mr Trump has warned North Korea it faces "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continues to threaten the U.S. with missiles, and issued similar threats after provocations from Pyongyang that included a claim it was planning a strike on Guam.

Trump's comments, made from his golf club retreat in New Jersey, came after the North announced a detailed plan to send four missiles over Japan and towards Guam, where some 6,000 U.S. soldiers are based.

Asked Friday about U.S. President Donald Trump's latest statements, Merkel declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S.in case of a military conflict with North Korea. Already North Korea is suffering grain shortages after a parched spring. Pyongyang has said it would take less than 18 minutes for a missile to cross the 3,400-kilometre (2,100-mile) distance to the United States territory. "At the same time, China will respond if the U.S. decides to attack North Korea", Asmolov said.

The Trump administration may say that the military option is on the table, but the Chinese don't act like they believe it.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow was "very alarmed" at Mr Trump's tough talk, and said Washington should take the first step towards cooling tensions.

United States stocks fall again on North Korea tensions
On the economic front, data is expected to show that US consumer prices likely rose in July after being unchanged the prior month. Shanghai's main index also tumbled 1.6 percent to 3,208.54 while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 dropped 1.2 percent to 5,693.10.

Trump declared yesterday that the USA military was "locked and loaded should North Korea act unwisely".

As a result, the possibility of war is on a lot of people's minds. Another poll released by Rasmussen Report on Friday showed 63 percent of voters polled believe the United States is now likely to take nuclear action against Kim Jong Un.

While tourists are free to visit the secretive state as part of strictly controlled tour groups, they are told to never take photos of soldiers by their handlers. She said, "I don't see a military solution and I don't think it's called for".

But Trump's comments did not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remained open.

On Thursday, Trump attacked the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un personally, saying: "He has disrespected our country greatly". China has also blamed the US and South Korea of obstructing that goal by insisting on pursuing joint military exercises, according to a report published by the NY.

Nationals' Harper leaves game with apparent knee injury
The play occurred minutes into a game that started at 10:06 p.m. - after a three-hour, one-minute rain delay. Harper, 24, entered the game hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs this season.

North Korea has announced plans to fire missiles near the U.S. territory of Guam.

At the ASEAN regional forum held August 7, Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said Beijing would pay a heavy economic price for the tougher sanctions on North Korea.

The defense ministry deployed the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system in Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi in western Japan, which North Korea had warned could be along its missiles' flight path, public broadcaster NHK and Kyodo News said.

"If we don't act, it gets worse [and] we're not going to be here to act".
